Changes in the radical-scavenging activity of bitter gourd (Momordica charantia L.) during freezing and frozen storage with or without blanching.
The effects of blanching, freezing, and frozen storage on the retention of radical-scavenging activity (RSA), total phenolics, and ascorbic acid in bitter gourd were investigated. Blanching of slicedExpand

The motility of Chara corallina myosin was inhibited reversibly by 2,3-butanedione monoxime (BDM).
We studied the effects of 2,3-butanedione monoxime (BDM) on the cytoplasmic streaming of Chara corallina and on the motility of myosin prepared from the same plant to examine whether this reagentExpand

Dnacin A1 and dnacin B1 are antitumor antibiotics that inhibit cdc25B phosphatase activity.
The p80cdc25 protein is a protein phosphatase directly involved in p34cdc2 protein kinase activation by dephosphorylation. The cdc25B gene is one of three human cdc25 homologs which can complementExpand

Sea urchin egg tropomyosin isoforms with muscle-type and nonmuscle-type antigenicities.
Egg tropomyosins were prepared from four sea urchin species, Stronglyocentrotus intermedius, Anthocidaris crassispina, Hemicentrotus pulcherrimus and Pseudocentrotus depressus, and their molecularExpand

Symptomless infection of tomato plants by tomatinase producing Fusarium oxysporum formae speciales nonpathogenic on tomato plants
Abstract Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici produces extracellular enzymes known as tomatinase, which degrade the tomato phytoanticipin α-tomatine to less toxic metabolites. Tomatinase gene (Expand

Modification of 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 metabolism by introduction of 26,26,26,27,27,27-hexafluoro atoms in human promyelocytic leukaemia (HL-60) cells: isolation and identification of a novel
To study whether the introduction of fluoro atoms into C-26 and C-27 positions on the 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1 alpha,25(OH)2D3] molecule could affect metabolism in human promyelocyticExpand

Molecular nature and possible presence of a membranous glycan-phosphatidylinositol anchor of CA125 antigen.
The molecular nature and possible presence of a glycan-phosphatidylinositol anchor (GPI-anchor) in CA125 molecules was investigated. Serial lectin affinity chromatography and N- or O-glycanaseExpand

High-performance liquid chromatographic separation of microcystins derivatized with a highly fluorescent dienophile.
Microcystins are potent hepatotoxins produced by cyanobacteria, and are also tumor promoters as well as potent inhibitors of the catalytic subunits of protein phosphatases 1 and 2A. In order toExpand

Characterizations of recombinant human tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase from osteosarcoma: comparison study between recombinant and placental proteins.
We cloned the human tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) gene from human osteosarcoma cells (Saos-2), and produced recombinant human TRAP (rhTRAP) using a baculovirus vector expression system.Expand

Distribution of the FoToml gene encoding tomatinase in formae speciales of Fusarium oxysporum and identification of a novel tomatinase from F. oxysporum f. sp. radicis-lycopersici, the causal agent
The antifungal glycoalkaloid α-tomatine accumulates in tomato plants and may protect plants from fungal infection. Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici, the causal agent of vascular wilt of tomato,Expand
